Hey, does anyone know the lyrics the frankly (born again to them) brilliant I got A Right and Gimme Some Skin, ano its Iggy so theyre all different probly, but does anyone know the lyrics to the Godfathers of LA Punk CDs versions?

Btw, EVERYONE DOWNLOAD THEM NOW OFF ITUNES NOW NOW NOW!!! Amean, i thought any of the like 20 strong verisons i had were good and powerful....no, no, no this kicks the shit outta all of them, i just listened to them again and am buzzed, typical stooges BRILLIANT

Theres no other band/aritst/watever that comes close to how good the stooges are, everytime i think they mightnt be as good as i remember after not having listenin to them for a cuple weeks or months, they just pull you right back to it and like fuckin kick ya, but the pain's turned to delight, fuck i love the stooges

Here's the lyrics you wanted, or some of them at least, haha. "I Got A Right" is complete, but unfortunately "Gimme Some Skin" has some totally impenetrable lines making up most of the second verse.

As for which version is on the "Godfathers Of LA Punk" cd, from what I can tell, after a quick look on the internet, they're the original versions. Recorded in London, July '72.

Here you go ...

"I Got A Right"

Anytime I want I got a right to move, no matter what they say
and anytime I want I got a right to move, no matter what they say

Honey I got a right, right to move
anytime I want, any old time
Honey I got a right, right to move
Anytime I want

And anytime I want I got a right to sing, no matter what they say
and anytime I want I got a right to sing, no matter what they say

Honey, I got a right, right to sing
anytime I want, any old time
Honey, I got a right, right to sing
Anytime I want

Anytime I want I got a right to move, no matter what they say
and anytime I want I got a right to move, no matter what they say

Honey I got a right, right to move
Anytime I want
Honey I got a right, right to move
Anytime I want

Said hey, hey, hey, hey, and alright
Said hey, hey, hey, hey, and alright
Said hey, hey, hey, hey, and alright
I said hey, hey, hey, hey, and alright

Do you feel it, do you feel it, feel it baby
Ah do ya. do ya, feel it
Feel it baby, do you feel it, I got a right
I got a right, I got a right
Said do you feel it, do ya, do ya, feel it
Feel it baby, I got a right, I got a right

Said hey, hey, hey. hey


"Gimme Some Skin"

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin
baby, gimme some skin, ya' gotta gimme some skin

Hey

Yeah

?????????????, she got soul
sucks all night out her own asshole
She shoots speed right up her ass
She shoots speed and she smokes grass

But I don't mind, well if your mind is gone
but if you want my body, ya' gotta gimme skin all night long

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin

?????????????, I ain't no fool
all the junkies they think it's cool
?????????????, ?????? not right
?????????????, ????????????

But I don't mind, well if your legs are thin
but if you want my body, you just gotta gimme some skin

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin
Baby, gimme some skin, gotta gimme some skin

Shit

Get fucked baby

?????????????, she got soul
sucks all night out her own asshole
Whip it on out, whip it on in
Come on, come on, honey
gotta gimme some skin

But I don't mind, well if your mind is gone
but if you want my body, gotta gimme skin all night long

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin
Honey, gimme some skin, gimme some skin

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme

I think it's "Typhoid Mary, she got soul...." I always assumed she was a groupie.
Here's a link to info on the real Typhoid Mary http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoid_Mary
As for the second verse... I've no idea!
Cheers,
Richard

Richard, I think you've got it!

That's pretty damn impressive, considering I've only been trying to figure that one out for about twenty-five years!, haha.

Any takers for the second verse?, all suggestions gratefully accepted.

P.S. I always thought that the second verse started with a girls name repeated a bunch of times, which would fit the overall Little Richard/50's R'N'R vibe of the song. Doesn't sound like Mary, more like "Biddy" ?!?!, but starting each verse with a different girls name is a pretty standard trick.

I thought it was Typhoid Mary/She's got soul/Sucks all night on an old asshole. I seem to remember reading it in an interview some time ago when Iggy was saying how he would receive royalty cheques for it every so often.

typhoid mary, she got soul
sucks all night on old asshole
She shoots speed right up her ass
She shoots speed and she smokes grass

But I don't mind, well if your mind is gone
but if you want my body, ya' gotta gimme skin all night long

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin

?????????????, I ain't no fool

?????????????, ????????????

But I don't mind, well if your legs are thin
but if you want my body, you just gotta gimme some skin

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin
Baby, gimme some skin, gotta gimme some skin

Shit

Get fucked baby

typhoid mary, she got soul

Gimme some skin, gimme some skin
Honey, gimme some skin, gimme some skin

what i updated in the lines is definitely correct. i have a cassette of iggy speaking on the radio + he mentions these lines - while it's his favorite piece he ever recorded/wrote.

Thanks for the Typhoid Mary part, I always thought it was:

"Time for man, she got some.
Sucks me in and lord I go.
She uses me, whatever I am.
She uses me, and takes what’s grand."


Anyway here are what I think are the complete lyrics...


Gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Oh baby gimme some skin!
Try to gimme some skin!

Hey!

Yeah!

Typhoid Mary, she got soul,
Sucks all night on old asshole.
She shoots speed right up her ass,
She shoots speed and she smokes grass.

But I don't mind,
Well if your mind is gone,
But if you want my body,
You gotta gimme skin all night long!
Gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Oh!

Better believe it, I ain't no fool,
All the junkies think it's cool.
Why don’t you show them? Show them my rights!
Baby! Baby! Baby! Gonna have mine!

Well I don't mind,
Well if your legs are thin.
But if you want my body! Wooo!
You just gotta gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Oh baby gimme some skin!
Wooo!
Honey gimme some skin!

Shit!
Oh!
Get fucked baby!

Typhoid Mary, she got soul,
Sucks all night on old asshole.
Whip it all out! Whip it all in!
Gotta come here honey, gotta gimme some skin!
But I don't mind!
Well if your mind is gone
But if you want my body! Wooo!
You gotta gimme skin all night long.

Gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Honey gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Gotta gimme some skin!
Gimme some skin!
Gotta gimme some skin!
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

'The Most Dangerous Woman in America' - that's one hell of a story! Rolling Eyes
haven't they made a film of it yet?

anyway, back to lyrics. What exactly does Iggy shout towards the close of 'TV Eye'? Sounds like 'ram it' to me, but I saw it written as 'brother' somewhere. Which seems totally incongruous, and doesn't sound like it anyway Laughing

It's "baby".

Scene Of The Crime lyrics are...

Out in the suburbs I met my true found love.
Out in the suburbs I met my true found love.
She gave me money,
Gave me head,
Gave me everything and she laid my bed.
And that ain't all!

She was fine but now she's gettin' old.
She was fast but now she's gettin' slow.
I can't go back to you.
I can't go back to you.

Can't go back second time.
Never return to the scene of the crime.

I need an alibi.
I need an alibi.
I need an alibi.
Just to live my life.

I need everything.
I need everything.
I need everything in this whole world,
All the money and all the girls,
All the scenes and all the fun,
Everything and everyone.

I won't live in an ordinary world.
No!
I won't have an ordinary girl.

Can't come back second time.
Gotta get away from the scene of the crime.
Scene of the crime.

I need an alibi.
I need an alibi.



Runner Legs lyrics are mumbled, improvised and part gibberish but here's what I made out:

Well I’m a boy with a rubber leg,
I’m the man with the big blue eyes.
I’m the one that the women want to see,
And they all want to have a time.

I gotta sledgehammer in my head,
I got the women all down my “P”.
I was fathered out in a trailer camp,
But now I’m a hard to beat.

Hard to beat!
Baby, hard to beat.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Come here baby, hard to beat.
Hard to beat.
I might show them round you just don’t know.
You just don’t know!
And you just know!

Well I wish I was a better man,
But the girls are gonna get to me.
Gonna make her cry, gonna make her cry!
Come here little honey bee.

Well I was hearing all about my soul!
And I was livin’ on my mamma’s bed!
Because I’m the boy with the big blue eyes,
And the boy with the rubber leg!

Rubber leg!
A, with the rubber leg!
A railroad boy with a rubber leg!
I just gotta think about my time.

Your gonna rip my sides,
Your gonna rip the sides.
I’m gonna rip my sides.
Yeah-eh.

Yeah.
Woo!

Well I’m a new found queen,
Just boogying around.
Down through the road,
In the bowels of hell.

Well my dad was a gamblin’ man!
And down in the cemeteries,
We gotta to live and talk, have a rubber time,
We all just gotta get a life.

Yeah mamma’s gonna knock her frock in the butter!
Oh she’s got to pack her weight!
She was born, oh no I’ll get my way!
Now I’m looking for head.
Looking for head! Head! Head!
Looking for head! Head! Head!
Looking for heeeeoooh!
Looking for,
HEAD!
Yeah looking for head.
You gotta feel my hair!
Your gonna feel my head.
Coloured blue in my hair! Hair! Hair!
Hey yeah.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah.
Oh no!

Just listened to the Studio Sessions CD, most of it is poor quality, well theyre decent enuff, except for hard to beat and cock in my pocket, which i havent heard for weeks, how good is that song, its so forceful, i always forget how good stooges are for some reason, amean how great they are never slips, but how good the songs are just blows me away each time i go back u'no

Yeh he should, he's a really underrated lyricist, Mojo described it well in hte weirdness review they said he could "in one hand hold the world and in the other flip it off", im paraphrasing but it was somethingl like that, which i thought was funny and quite true, but he has a great way with lyrics i think, and he should produce a lyrics book

altho i think it would ruin some songs, its like reading a dylan or stones line you thougth was completely different, and one that spoke to you u'no and it turns out its this completely different line, with a completely different message u'no - spoils it somewhat, and with songs like gimme some skin, and rubber legs, and any of those rehearsals or anything i think its best to write the song yourself really, by trying to decipher the lyrics

also we wouldnt have the australian band Radio Birdman without mis-hearing a lyric "Radio burnin' up above" / "radio birdman up above"

(which i have to admit i thought was birdman for ages too!)
